A report this week put Sprint’s network firmly in last place among national carriers.
Starting today and lasting for the next year, Sprint will offer five lines of “unlimited” data for $90, total.
Those of you keeping score at home will notice that’s $18 per line, which is a little bit crazy.
Now, there are caveats. The deal will only last for a year, and you have to buy five lines in order for the per-line pricing to get that low. (If you just want one line, that’ll cost you $50 on sale.)
Sprint’s “unlimited” plan gets the scare-quotes because, just like T-Mobile’s plan, it isn’t really unlimited.
But still, even with all the restrictions on data and including the additional fees that I’m sure will be tacked on, this deal represents awesome value for a medium-usage family that wants to save on its phone bill.
